I’ve been in Denmark for almost 2 weeks now, and it feels like it has gone by so fast! I’ve been immersed in a lot of Danish language, but sadly I am still at the stage where most of it sounds like noise. I’ve mentioned on this blog that I’ve lived in a foreign country before (Thailand), but this time things are very different: I’ve come here to live with my Danish girlfriend!
The past few days have been really eventful – I made the journey from UK to DK and am now writing this from Copenhagen, Denmark.
It’s been a while since I’ve done the whole ‘living in a foreign country’ thing, and I am really enjoying it. The Danes I’ve met here are really friendly and they seem happy that I am making an effort to speak their language. I plan on enrolling in a language school soon, which should help me progress with the language.
I plan on maintaining this blog as more of a language log, sharing my experiences and (inevitable) frustrations I have. There will be more to come soon!
I’ve used several of the Teach Yourself products in the past – Thai, Italian and Mandarin Chinese – but this Teach Yourself Danish is a little different because it boasts that it also teaches you to learn how to learn. It uses what it calls the ‘Discovery Method’ to do this, with bold claims on the book cover that you will “learn faster and remember more”. Actually, for me I found this to work!
